Homework Help: Math 156

Posted by jessica on Friday, August 7, 2009 at 1:54pm.

1)Suppose you buy 1 ticket for $1 out of a lottery of 3000 tickets. If the prize for the one winning
ticket is to be $500, what are your expected winnings? I'm assuming the answer for this one is $0.00

2)A basketball player with a free throw shooting percentage of 60% gets fouled and goes to the line
to shoot two free throws. What are the odds in favor of her making her first shot? Is the answer 3:5

3)Two dice are rolled. Find the odds that the score on the dice is either 10 or at most 5. Now for this one I came up with 1:2

Can someone please check if I came up with the correct answers. I'm studying for my quiz
